Apartment inspections in separation cases

Sometimes only some of the tenants in an apartment for friends or family move out and the rest continue to live there. In these cases, the apartment inspection takes a different course.

The inspector will check the condition of the apartment, but will not comment on the level of cleanliness (except in cases of gross neglect, where the surfaces in the apartment are at risk of permanent damage). The inspector will also not check the ceiling connection boxes.

The inspector will go over certain points that affect the condition of the apartment and may, for example, make a note of shelves that are bolted into the wall and add a request to remove the shelves, fill the holes with putty, and paint over them. This ensures that the tenants have a chance to agree on the repairs between them. It is also intended to make sure that the tenant staying on in the apartment understands that unless the faults are fixed during this move, he/she will be responsible for them later. In that case, the tenant remaining in the apartment has to either fix the faults or pay the cost of fixing them to Hoas when they move out.
